If you're serious that your posted version is better than Van Morrison - okay, musical tastes vary (widely) ;-) Interesting version, I admit.A much better "stranded."
I hate Van Morrison, one of the truly over-rated musicians of the 20th century. It was all downhill after Brown Eyed Girl.If you're serious that your posted version is better than Van Morrison - okay, musical tastes vary (widely) ;-) Interesting version, I admit.
interestingI saw this band live Sunday, superb show by musicians who must be linked electrically, because their herky-jerky music was always completely in sync. One of the funnest shows I've ever been to, and I have probably been to over a couple thousand (including clubs) in my life. They all had big grins on their faces from beginning to end, they were obviously having so much fun, and the audience felt the same.
And they did an in-studio show at Seattle's KEXP recently:
This punk rocker who hates country music LOVES Dolly Parton. I consider her one of the greatest songwriters of the modern era, and seemingly a really good person, besides. That latter means a lot to me. The vast majority of these uber famous folks are, frankly, assholes.
Yeah, they're not for everyone. My last two shows (both pre-pandemic) were old fart bands:interesting
It goes to show us that taste in music is an individual preference. Personally, if U2 comes on a playlist, I change channels. ;-)I hate Van Morrison, one of the truly over-rated musicians of the 20th century. It was all downhill after Brown Eyed Girl.
Funny story, I was in Ireland last spring, and more than once was told, "There are two types of people: People who like Van Morrison, and those who know him." He is widely despised there, maybe because he's a northerner. Amazingly, the favorite musicians in Ireland are dead: Rory Gallagher (people fall to their knees when his name is mentioned), and Phil Lynnott of Thin Lizzy. U2 comes in third. Another widely related joke: "The difference between Bono and God is that God doesn't think he's Bono."
OTOH, The Saints' version is probably the first true punk rock single ever, beating all the British bands.
